THIS JUST IN! A new animated television series, featuring Betty Boop, is now being developed by NORMAAL Animation, the producer of the “Peanuts” TV series.
Aimed at tweens and teens, the series will share Betty Boop's indomitable spirit with a whole new generation of fans with a story line that follows the daily struggles, joys and victories of young Betty Boop, who has every intention of being on stage and becoming a superstar.
Slated for release in 2018, the series will be produced by France–based NORMAAL studios in partnership with Fleischer Studios and King Features, the New York City-based unit of Hearst and exclusive worldwide licensing agent for Betty Boop.
We are delighted to be partnering with the fresh and creative production company, NORMAAL Animation. My grandfather, Max Fleischer, created Betty Boop as the fun, feisty and fashionable woman whose spirit has transcended and transformed multiple generations of fans. It is so exciting to know that this television series will present Max’s beloved icon through new, highly original content that will continue to keep Betty engaging and relatable to future generations of fans.
